November FAIR Treasure Review

I'm always excited to see what gifts will be inside FAIR Treasure's boxes, and I am incredibly thankful to learn that they'll be sending me three more boxes to review.  FAIR Treasure sends a monthly shipment of handmade, artisan products that support fair trade organizations.  For only $30 a month, it's a great way to receive products that you may not find elsewhere and help people from around the world.

November's box contained a jewelry item and a candle.  I've received quite a few beautiful jewelry pieces from FAIR Treasure, and I always enjoy reading the stories of the people who made them.  I'm also a candle addict, so this one was a wonderful addition to my collection.

These Lima Posts earrings from Greenola are made entirely from recycled materials.  Karina of Cochabamba, Bolivia, crafts all of her glass work jewelry from recycled bottles that she collects herself from neighbors and local businesses.  I love that she's creating something beautiful from recycled materials, since environmentalism is another issue I feel passionately about.  These earrings aren't normally a style I would choose for myself, but I really do like them and I'm glad I received something new to try!

This Gratitude Candle by Maroma is from the Auroville community of South India.  Auroville was established as a "universal town" around 40 years ago where men and women of various nationalities could come together to work and live.  There are now approximately 50,000 people working in Auroville.  Maroma crafts provide women of the area with sustainable work, and many of the citizens work in areas of organic farming, renewable energy, and eco-friendly industries.  This candle contains essential oils of orange, grapefruit and lemon, creating a wonderful citrus aroma.  I'm also in love with the gorgeous detailing on the packaging!

Bottom Line: November's FAIR Treasure box contained another selection of items I can put to great use.  I've been thoroughly pleased with all of the past boxes I've received and I encourage anyone who is interested in fair-trade items to give this subscription a try!
